What is At Our Heart?
We are excited to launch At Our Heart, a club endorsement tool which is a way to celebrate and recognise your club in areas which they succeed in, care about and are central to everything the club does, hence, ‘At Our Heart’.
We have purposefully made this tool simple for clubs to get involved with. Clubs can obtain an endorsement or a series of endorsements across core areas of the game and together, we can celebrate this achievement.
The areas of the game which can be celebrated are:
Our club –
- Is Well Run (the entry point)
- Is a Good Place to Play
- Develops People
- Is Engaged in our Community
- Supports Player Potential
- Makes a Difference to People’s Lives
- Is Inclusive
The process of obtaining an endorsement is simple. In order to achieve a endorsement, the club must meet indicators which are not rigid, and clubs can demonstrate they meet indicators in various ways.
Your club will be celebrated through several platforms working with basketballscotland’s development and communications teams. Endorsement can be added to your club’s promotional materials, such as welcome letters to parents, flyers, website and social media pages to demonstrate you have governing body recognition for specific areas.
Once your club has obtained an endorsement, it doesn’t stop there. This is an ongoing process, and clubs that obtain endorsements will be assessed regularly, ensuring standards remain high in clubs.
